NAJ CEO steps down

Michael Rawlinson has announced that he has stepped down from his role as the CEO of the National Association of Jewellers (NAJ).

Rawlinson said that his reason for his resignation was to pursue other interests.

In his resignation letter, he said: “I have achieved what I set out to do when I joined the National Association of Goldsmiths (NAG). Four years ago, the possibility of joining together the two jewellery industry trade bodies arose. From this moment the prize of unifying the British Jewellers’ Association (BJA) and NAG was the goal.

The NAJ is now ready to do its work as the single voice and leading trade body for the industry.”

Simon Johnson, NAJ chairman, said, “Michael has done a great job bringing together two organisations and two locations, as well as moving the London office to an ideal site in the heart of creative Clerkenwell.

Change of this size is no easy task and he has achieved it with the support and backing of his team and the NAJ National Committee. We wish him well in his next challenge.”
